Postpartum hair loss is a part of the fourth trimester that is not talked about enough in my opinion. Our bundle of joy is worth what we go through but I just want to shed some light on this. My hair did grow while I was pregnant with my twins but about 3 months after I had them I lost quite a bit of hair especially around my edges.
Postpartum hair loss is mostly seen within 6 months of delivering and your hair should return back to normal within a year. Your hair grows during pregnancy because of pregnancy hormones that decrease daily shedding but when the hormones go so does that extra hair.
Tips for helping with post partum hair loss:
Be careful with protective styles that they’re not too tight or that the hair additions aren’t irritating your scalp
Limit use of straighteners, blow dryers, color an chemicals
Just know that what you’re going through is normal and so many women can relate to it. Your hair will come back and it’s just a part of the process. Don’t beat yourself up it’s literally hormones. You’re a warrior and that hair loss is just a badge of honor.
